    Use your computer as a music server - for sound quality that beats any CD player!

    Macbook and DAC•iT

    Your PC or Mac computer isn’t just for getting work done and checking Facebook. It can be a music server when connected to a DAC•iTx. Everything from Pandora to 24/192 Studio Master files from sites like HDtracks.com sound amazing by taking advantage of the asynchronous USB input and ESS Sabre DAC. DAC•iTx is plug and play for Mac OSX 10.6.4 and newer and requires a simple driver install for Windows users (instructions and driver download).

    Enhance your wireless whole house audio system!

    connect Sonos to DAC•iT

    Sonos has mastered wireless whole house audio technology and their Sonos Connect box can easily be connected to DAC•iTx for a demonstrable boost in sound quality when compared to the Sonos direct analog output. Simply hook up the Connect with a 75Ω coax digital cable to the DAC•iTx to hear what you’ve been missing.

    Upgrade your CD player with state of the art technology!

    DAC technology has come a long way, especially in the last ten years. If your CD player is a bit long in the tooth but still functioning properly you don’t need to replace it. Instead connect it to a DAC•iTx with a digital cable to instantly bring its performance up to modern standards. Even an old DVD player can be made into a high performance music machine with a DAC•iTx!

    Want to dock it? Add a digital iPod dock alongside DAC•iTx for amazing sound from your iPod!

    connect to DAC•iT via a dock

    If you have an older iPod or just prefer to dock your iPhone all you need is a digital iPod dock and a DAC•iTx. You’ll get way better sound quality than if you’re connecting your iPod to your stereo with a typical “mini to RCA” cable. We really like the performance and price of the Pure i20 dock (available from Amazon for under $100). Connect it to a DAC•iTx with a 75Ω coax digital cable and you’re ready to dock it and rock it.

    ESS Sabre 9023 DAC

    The 9023 Sabre chip from ESS Technology is a testament of trickle down technology. It delivers a lion’s share of the performance of their top-of-the-line 9018 chip for a fraction of the price. Its patented Hyperstream jitter elimination is a key reason why DAC•iTx can make non-audiophile sources (Apple TV, computer) sound so good.

    Galvanic Isolation


    Electrically connected sources like your computer’s USB or your streamer's coax digital output can carry noise along with the digital signal. This noise masks fine detail in recordings and makes your music unfocused and hazy. Galvanic isolation moves this noise away from the digital signal so you end up with clearer more detailed sound.

    Asynchronous USB

    The USB input on DAC•iTx is the best sounding input for digital music. Asynchronous technology allows the digital clock inside DAC•iTx to control the flow of data coming from your computer. This method of communication leads to less jitter (timing errors) for the Sabre DAC to deal with which results in clearer, more defined sound.

    For added convenience, a remote control with direct input selection is included with the DAC•iTx.

    Reviews of the original award-winning DAC•iT

    Stereophile logo
    "Of (all the DACs mentioned) that cost less than $500, I would easily reach first for the DAC•iT...Peachtree Audio clearly knows what they're doing, and their DAC•iT is incredibly enjoyable to listen to. The guys at Peachtree are apparently fussy listeners, and in this model their fussiness has paid off." Read the full review . . .
    Computer Audiophile logo
    "In fact, I'd put DACs worth thousands of dollars more than the DAC•iT up against this thing and expect very little difference ... I encourage readers to find another DAC of this quality anywhere near this price." Read the full review . . .
